We are a privileged generation because we live in a time where vast areas of the Internet are (still?) free. If you are able and willing to pay ( in one way or the other for example through course fees ) for Internet services, the value of the Internet increases several orders of magnitude. Registered ( Open University ) students have access to the Library Services of their university. If you like Google News you will be surprised by the ( historical ) news databases the Open University is subscribed to. You will only be using Google News to get a feeling for the current events, not more. ( Even more so if you are aware of, have woken up to, the fact that the mainstream media are controlled by a limited number of corporations and are merely distributing propaganda and disinformation. )
The truth is out there.
Just above the posts area you'll find a POLL about the usage of the Open University Library Services. Do you use them? If so, how often?

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
Its even better if you leave the OU they still allow you to access the library as your passwrod is still valid there were a couple of years when I wasn't officially registered with the Open University but I was still able to use the library facilities
